Rampage is one of the oldest and most prestigious marching band competitions in California. In addition to local high schools — Valencia, West Ranch, Golden Valley, Saugus, Canyon, and Hart — Rampage will feature schools from throughout the southern half of California.
“Every year, Rampage gets bigger and the competition gets tougher,” says Anthony Bailey, band director at Hart, who has been involved with 11 Rampage competitions. “We’re thrilled that it has grown to become one of the most important marching band competitions in the state.”
“If you’re looking for something to do for the day, marching band competitions are fun for the entire family,” according to Paul Cardey, Chairman of Rampage 2010, adding that the tournament is entirely run by Hart Music Boosters parent volunteers. “It’s a great way to spend a Saturday. You can come to all or part of it and enjoy great music and performances.”
Rampage tickets will be available on the day of the competition. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, and free for children under 5. For more information, contact Paul Cardey at (818) 266-4120 or visit www.hartregiment.com.
Rampage will include its signature feature – the largest mass drum-line in Southern California featuring drummers from all the day’s performing bands followed by the awards ceremony.
In 2009, Hart Regiment was named state champion in its division by the Southern California School Band & Orchestra Assn. (SCSBOA) for the eighth consecutive year — an accomplishment that remains unmatched by any other group.
